child you're tender; your name's a whisper

Child I love you
I'm ever so fond of you

It's been a crazy busy week.  I have had a hard time keeping up.

But it's been all good things.

It's been a week filled with children and all that children entail.

Including a birthday:

6th birthday

{She begged for this cake and then dressed to match it.  Ah, the pleasures of turning 6.}

The cake idea is from here and here.

and a summer-like day.  It hit 93 degrees and broke all kinds of records.  When that happens, you are required to drop everything and take everyone to the park.  So that's what we did.

And now I'm going to go relax.  Have a great weekend!

That cake is the most perfect 6 year old cake that I have ever seen. And dressing to match? Now that is fancy. Happy birthday little Abs- you are sweet and you are good and your Auntie loves you all way over here in Japan. XOXO.
